About this winery:
The Valdicava property lies on a high plane close to Montalcino. Wines from this area have as their signature characteristics a great balance between body and perfume. The winery dates back to 1953 when Bramante Abbruzzese was offered the opportunity to return to the property in Montalcino where his ancestors were sharecroppers centuries before. Today grandson Vincenzo Abbruzzese runs the show, producing up to 6000 cases each year with no chemical pesticides or fertilizers.
Here's what reviewer Antonio Galloni has to say about this winery:
"Proprietor Vincenzo Abbruzzese makes some of the richest Brunellos readers will come across. The straight Brunello is a blend of the estate's parcels, while the Madonna del Piano is a single-vineyard wine. Both Brunellos are aged in cask. In the cellar, the young wines always exude notable class and personality."
Ratings & Reviews
"The nose is intense, in the 2018 Rosso di Montalcino, pushing forward from the glass with masses of ripe black cherry, sweet spices, tobacco, cedar dust and dried floral tones. The finish is long, resonating on dark red fruits, spicy herbs, and a mix of zesty acids and minerals. The 2008 doesn’t present the depths of the finest years, but it is a wonderful effort.
